Maryland offensive coordinator Walt Bell is expected to be hired as Florida State's offensive coordinator, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday. Bell, 32, will join the staff of new Seminoles head coach Willie Taggart, who took over after Jimbo Fisher left to take the Texas A&M head coaching job. Two other Maryland offensive assistants have already left: Anthony Tucker departed to become the running backs coach at Central Florida and offensive line coach Tyler Bowen left to take the same position at Penn State.

Ohio State Buckeyes LB Jerome Baker opts to enter 2018 NFL Draft

Sports
Ohio State junior Jerome Baker, an athletic linebacker with first-round potential, announced Monday he is entering the NFL Draft. NFLDraftScout.com lists him as the top outside linebacker in the junior class with a first- or second-round grade. Baker, however, was a bit disappointing this season, when he made 72 tackles, including eight for loss and three sacks. NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst Rob Rang wrote of Baker: "Quick passes to backs and tight ends are forcing defensive coordinators to find athletic linebackers who can cover with many willing to sacrifice size for speed. Because of this fact, Baker has a chance to earn an early selection. "That said, one shouldn't have to search for linebackers on tape and all too often that has been the case with Baker.

Cuomo is asking state lawmakers to provide $ 1 million to the State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) systems to implement the program. Chancellors at both schools applauded the proposal, which could help expand their existing efforts. A 2015 survey done by CUNY indicated that nearly 15% of its students go hungry at some point because they can't afford to buy enou...
